Kitten Decorated Cupcakes

Piping the buttercream fur is a crucial step that adds texture and character to these adorable kitten cupcakes. The fur piping not only makes the cupcakes visually appealing but also adds a whimsical and lifelike touch. As you squeeze the piping bag and create strands of fur with the grass tip, you'll see each cupcake transform into a fluffy and charming little kitten. Here's a step-by-step guide to help you bring these adorable creatures to life:


  • White Decorating Buttercream Icing
  • Terracotta Soft Gel Paste™ Food Color
  • Deep Pink Soft Gel Paste™ Food Color
  • Slate Soft Gel Paste™ Food Color
  • #349 Leaf/Lily Petal Stainless Steel Piping
  • #2 Round Opening Stainless Steel Piping Tip
  • #233 Hair/ Fur/ Grass Stainless Steel Piping Tip
  • Icing Layons - Mini Flower Power
  • Black Sugar Pearls
  • White candy coated chocolate pieces
  • Edible Food Marker


Prepare buttercream icing in shades of terracotta, slate gray, pink and white.
Fit 3 piping bags with grass tip #233 and fill with the terracotta, gray and white buttercream.
Fit 2 piping bags with leaf tip #349, in shades of terracotta and slate gray.
Place a small amount of pink buttercream in a tipless bag. Cut a small hole for the tip.
Base Fur Piping:
Pipe a patch of fur onto the base of each cupcake using the grass tip #233. Pipe terracotta, slate gray, and or white buttercream to achieve a calico or bi-colored effect. Be creative with the placement of colors.
Decide where you want to place the ears and pipe a leaf shape for each ear using the leaf tip #349. Add a touch of pink buttercream for the inner ear, similar to piping a leaf.
Place two black sugar pearls for the eyes. Position them appropriately to give the kitten a charming expression.
For the muzzle, use candy-coated white chocolate pieces. Place two pieces strategically. Using a black edible food marker, apply small dots for whiskers.
Pipe a small pink nose just above the muzzle.
Floral Decoration:
Enhance the cupcakes by adding a royal icing sugar flower for added decoration. This adds a touch of elegance and complements the whimsical design.
Now you have a batch of irresistibly cute calico or bi-colored kitten cupcakes, each a unique piece of edible art. Enjoy the process and share these delightful treats with others to spread joy and sweetness!
